Prem Ramaswami – One of our 20 People to Watch
Prem Ramaswami has demonstrated fully the enormous impact that the proper information, made accurate, accessible, and timely, can have on society. Working with Google.org, the charitable wing of the internet giant, Prem focused on Google’s Dotorg efforts around Crisis Response, making critical information more accessible around natural disasters and humanitarian crises. His work there enabled a faster, more efficient response to the earthquake in Haiti, undoubtedly saving scores of lives.
Prem’s work illustrates the transformative effect that concise, clear, accurate and widely available data can have – itself perhaps the greatest revelation of the 20 years. We hope and expect to see more life-saving work from Prem. And for that reason, he’s one of our 20 People to Watch.
